American Health Information Management Association Launches PHR Initiative

October 17, 2007

AHIMA has announced its initiative to educate the public about Personal Health Records. It will include TV and other media ads later this year and next year. Neil Versel notes that this will be an uphill battle since adoption of PHRs by the public has been slow. However, this kind of initative is just what is needed and may create a tipping point. AHIMA will be training state and local chapters on PHRs so there is potential for a small army of speakers and educators on this topic. The MyPHR website has basic information about the range of PHRs without recommending a particular one. I wish, however, that there was a bigger push for online records which are secure and carefully evaluated.
